Actually, that was the GOP controlled Congress that balanced the budget during the late 1990s, and MediCare/MedicAid spending continued to increase by 6.5%, despite Clinton's vetoes.

As the economy grows... Those jobs will be absorbed when the economy booms... just like when after WW II ended and the troops came home...

The Energy Department manages and disposes nuclear material. Great idea Ron Paul.

The last three years under Clinton ran surpluses (at least nominally). It happened for two reasons: 1) economic growth meant that increased tax revenue was coming in. 2) a D prez and R house meant political gridlock, which meant that spending increased at a low rate.

So we should keep the troops abroad and on the backs of the productive class because you think they will be unemployed?

States? Where the money is free? Or would they need to raise funds on the taxpayer to dispose of the waste?

Have you thought this all out?

That would send our and the world's economy over the edge into a complete free fall to 60+% unemployment, 50% personal bankruptcies and massive bank failures along with the loss of all 401k accounts. They would not be Happy Days.

Now I would not mind if this happened only to the idiots voring for him but the economic disaster would take the rest of us with him.
